The STOP TB Partnership – Kenya was registered on August 17, 2011 under the Societies Act (Cap 108) of the laws of Kenya. The partnership was created to mobilise a massive movement of organisations committed to the fight against TB in order to bolster actions and leverage resources for the elimination of TB in Kenya.
The National STOP TB Partnership constitution was developed and a prelaunch done in 2011. The partnership is led by a national steering committee comprised of organisational member representatives.
Among the objectives of the partnership are to advocate for appropriate actions for TB elimination in Kenya, collectively partner in working towards TB elimination, mobilise appropriate resources and to develop, adopt and adapt appropriate technical norms for the elimination of TB in Kenya.
CHS (through the USAID funded Tuberculosis Accelerated Response and Care (TB ARC) activity) supports the Stop TB Partnership Secretariat in facilitating and linking partners with common areas of interest, creating a platform to facilitate consensus and coordinating advocacy approaches and resource mobilization in TB prevention, care and control.
